Excellent Glove

Brian in OR

Comments On May 06, 2014:I wanted a pair of quality winter gloves that aren't too bulky for me to feel my controls, that didn't break the bank, and wouldn't fall apart after the first couple rides like my last ones did. I got these last fall, it's now late spring and they've done what I expected. They look nice, material and stitching are quite good, and they're even armored. Use of the controls was not as perfect as with my summer gloves, but I could still easily feel the tiny controls on my old '87 XL600 dual-sport, which is far better than most winter gloves. I have short fat fingers and though tight, generally wear a size med because I hate bunching at the tip of my fingers. They are true to size. I ordered both sizes L and M just in case, and ended up keeping the medium. While trying the size L, an old lady was coming at me in my lane and I couldn't even find the horn in time because the bunching in the finger tips. That day they were packed and shipped back.
Please note that these gloves are a trade-off. Below about 45F can get uncomfortable for anything but short local rides. I added silk liners but all they did was make the gloves much easier to take on/off, which was worth it on it's own, but didn't really help with the cold. I pleasure ride in the pacific northwest (Portland, OR). Gloves do not leak. Rain showers are a part of life here, but I avoid heavy rain. I made several 4-6 hour rides while the roads were still iced over. Don't do this in these gloves unless you can take the pain. Many stops to warm hands over warm motor. For me tactile feedback wins over comfort at temps below 45F. If you are a daily commuter, you might want a different glove. Overall very satisfied with quality, features and price.

Great winter glove.

Emma in QLD

Comments On May 26, 2013:Fit is perfect, very nice warm gloves. Perfect for the Aussie winter :) Not too bulky either so you still have more feedback on the bars than some other winter gloves. Very happy with these!

Great for most of the year

David in WA

Comments On Mar 31, 2012:Love these gloves. It is hard to find a good armored winter glove. They fit right for their advertised size. Construction is very good. The downsides to this glove is that it is not 100% waterproof and long rides under 45 degrees might be uncomfortable. Overall I am very happy with my purchase

Sharp lookin and great quality

Jonathan in AR

Comments On Nov 15, 2011:Ive worn these gloves for 3 years now and they still look new. They break in easy and are very comforable. Keep my hands warm. And i use them on my sportbike on the interstate going 75mph in 40 degree weather. If it gets to low 30's and under they get cold.
